- Active time:10 min
- Start to finish:45 min
- 2 cups cake flour (not self-rising)
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
- 4 1/2 teaspoons chopped thyme, divided

Preheat oven to 425°F with rack in middle. Lightly butter a baking sheet.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Add cream and 1 1/2 tsp thyme and stir until a dough just forms.
Gather dough into a ball, then pat into an 8- by 4-inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface with floured fingers. Cut into 8 squares.
Brush tops of biscuits with maple syrup, then sprinkle with remaining 3 tsp thyme. Transfer to baking sheet 1 inch apart and bake until pale golden, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.
